For everything there is a season—a time to die and a time to be born. With the arrival of winter’s low dark sky, communities around the world look to the miracle of light as a sign of rebirth and a source of hope. We celebrate the promise of new life and recommit ourselves to the protection of everyone’s right to his or her own radiant humanity. Celebrating the Winter Holidays, thus, is an excellent opportunity for Unitarian Universalist (UU) congregations to express their commitment to our Sixth Principle: We Covenant to Affirm and Promote the Goal of World Community with Peace, Liberty and Justice for All.
Following are a few suggestions for bringing Sixth Principle Ministry to life in relation to your winter holidays activities in Seven Areas:
As warm light envelops winter dark, hopefully these ideas will inspire creativity, vision and compassion.
For more information about any of the suggestions, or to share additional ideas, please contact the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) Office of International Resources: international @ uua.org.
Note: Please contact the International Resources Office to report on your international engagement during the Winter Holidays. We would like to send you a token of appreciation!
